[ male announcer ] enbrel may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, nervous system and blood disorders, and allergic reactions have occurred. before starting enbrel, your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. you should not start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if you have symptoms such as persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. since enbrel helped relieve my joint pain, it's the little things that mean the most. ask your rheumatol
the alleged use of chemical weapons by the assad regime. speaking last night, u.s. vice president joe biden said there was no doubt chemical weapons were used and those responsible should be held accountable. the british prime minister david cameron's office backed the white house earlier today saying both governments had clear evidence the regime carried out the attacks. cameron reconvened parliament early to vote for a motion on syria on thursday, but some surrounding cautious on international intervention. sergey lavrov has reportedly warned the u.n. that an attack on syria would destabilize the region. hadly gamble is with us on set. >> the russians aren't the only ones worried about what a post assad syria would look like. i had a chance to catch up with an egyptian billionaire and he said, yes, he thinks assad's days are numbered but is deeply troubled about what will happen to the country when assad is gone. >> the problem right now is exactly that. we want to help the syrian people to get out of dictatorship. that is for sure. but under no way fanatic, terroristic elements that oper
, the first lady, michelle obama, also vice president joe biden and joe biden, they're expected to travel to key states to educate the public and encourage the folks to enroll in the new coverage options that are out there in america. in the meantime, the religious right spent the summer bearing false witness against obama care. these republicans have lied. >> let's repeal this failure before it literally kills women, kills children, kills senior citizens. let's not do that. let's love people. as people of faith, i'm a born again believer in jesus christ. and i believe that it is part of my duty as i an believer in christ and what he has done for me that we should do for the least of those who are in our midst. >> well, her words speak for themselves. don't they? they have threatened to shut down the government over this. >> the continuing resolution that funds congress expires on september 30th. i've publicly stated as has mike lie and marco rubio and a number of other senators that i will not vote for any continuing resolution that funds even a single penny of obama care. >> most of all
think the president is trying very hard to thread a complicated needle. in april of 2010, joe biden and president obama hosted a major nuclear materials and wmd materials conference here in washington, d.c., and viewed essentially trying to create -- restoring a global commons that prevented the proliferation and use of wmds and chemical weapons as a defining point of their administration. so not to act from their point of view is not really an opposioption. i think when from their point of view they're trying to create a stable option, how do you go from a strike on syria to a geneva peace process? you have both sides squaring off. and i think it may sound odd and it would be nice to review in a month on what happens, but if things went well and you were able to punish the regime enough so that people could tell it was compelling but not part of a regime strategy which the administration has been bending over backwards saying we're not trying to knock out assad, that is a signal to the russians saying we are open to some change in the future. and that allows us to go into a geneva
on the other side about how this resonates for you in new orleans, but this was vice president joe biden earlier talking about one of them. take a look. >> the proposed rule requires people associated with these kinds of trusts or corporations to go through the same background check that individuals have to do. we'll end this means by which to get these most dangerous weapons to people who are not under the law allowed to own them. >> so mr. mayor, like other urban and major cities, new orleans struggles with the issue of crime. what specifically did the president say that resonated that you can take back and implement for the people of new orleans. >> first of all, the fact that he had the meeting on the day before he was going to commemorate dr. king's address, and simultaneously considering our nation as response, really indicated to us that he's serious about finding every which way we can to curb urban violence, so that spoke volumes. secondly the mayors around the country are working on the same kind of cat trophic problems, what we have said, is -- is a catastrophic event that's o

and creates a task force for the middle-class. joe biden headed that because he is very upper class. even obama began shifting focus from the working class and the poor to lower middle class so i think who he is appealing to while he was campaigning originally in his first term to average earners after the great recession. the mortgage crisis. a lot of us were hurt. it didn't matter if you were in upper-middle-class you got hurt by the mortgage crisis as well. for him to get elected he started appealing towards wealthier people than he had in his first term. so where are we now? we are still at the one top% of households own one third of the total private health. it's staggering 5% of americanamerican s account for war than one third of consumer purchases. this idea of the bell curve of the post-war years does not exist anymore. regardless of your political inclinations. if you look at these numbers i'm not sure how you can say there is a genuine middle-class. and going to wrap up. i think the rise and fall of the american middle class is one if not the biggest story of the 20 century in
qaeda about what they call a major attack. politics, turning to vice president joe biden heads to new hampshire later this month. he will appear at a fundraiser for the state's democratic governor. the fundraiser is slated to be held at the home of a lobbyist. a station in hampshire notes the trip could stoke speculation joe biden is preparing for a white house bid in 2016. in an interview last month the vice president made it clear he is not ruling out a run saying "i can die a happy man never having been president of the united states of america. but it doesn't mean i won't run you." new york republican congressman peter king is testing the waters. the 11 term congressman is in new hampshire today and tomorrow. thanks linking says "i believe the republican party would be receptive to my candidacy." those are some of the latest headlines on c-span radio. >> i have been pushing for this in the senate, that we would move cybersecurity legislation. it is big, it is complicated. the word cybersecurity means different things to different people. but we need to get this done. actually, as
an actual or imminent threat to the nation. that was then. vice president joe biden, when he was a senator back in 2007, in a different context going to war against iran, said this -- i want i want to make it clear, and i made it clear to the president, that if he takes the nation to war in iran without congressional approval, i will make it my business to impeach him. that's a fact. that is a fact. >> that is a fact. he said, that is a fact, if he goes to war against iran without congressional approval, i will call for his impeachment. you know, john, iran is a major supporter of syrian president assad. the iranians say they will retaliate itches that's one of the strategic calculations about how to do the military operation, one of the great skepticism you get in congress, you talk to retired diplomats and generals, can you deliver that blunt force on syria, as the president is plachbing, without causing a domino effect. look at a map, you know the whole gulf region right there. the administration is trying to come up with a plan that punishing syria without having a ripple effect. wolf,
of democrats are laughing about this. five years ago we had this guy joe biden, barack obama, hillary clinton, they went at it pretty tough and they won the white house. if you handle this right a good feisty debate is good for the party. >> i would love to put the politician in the bronco. they need more than beer. >> they can pay for the gas. >> one of the things the democrats are celebrating is the student loan bill got done. why do they think this is so good for families? >> because washington did something that matters to middle class families. most days we are talking about washington being incapable of tying shoes. the republicans say they won with their approach to make it market based. the rates are tied to the ten year treasury bill. they actually got something done. people went in the room and kept trying until they figured out a reasonable compromise. now we will see it go into effect. this is another thing. do people say i like this deal or do people say they have problems with the deal? it is one of the things we need to watch. >> this is one of the areas where you saw the divis
